The fire-extinguisher Rubini extinguished cigarettes, poured burning varnish and sprayed fire from his mouth. "Sthe throat can withstand most things, but not brandy " he said in an interview. 

At the end of June 1917 Cirkus Strassburger came to Falkenberg. A journalist fell for a special issue and came to write: "Rubini, 'the living volcano' as he is called, is a phenomenon that arouses the greatest wonder. It is a fire-eating man who is able to hold a lit candle in his mouth without burning himself, drip burning varnish on his tongue, and drink petrol, which he then sprays out in the form of fire torches. Explain it, whoever can! ”

Who was he? Danish circus experts claim that it was the Dane Niels Peter Viggo Jensen, a charismatic man who is said to have had a lion in his garden to keep the taxman away. Rubini's true identity, however, is highly unclear and remains a mystery.
